I don't go to every show I can because of the cost. I'm sure most people are like that.
I go when I can, and try to make it a wild experience if I can. Less quantity is OK for me.
Seeing all the NYE pics, everyone having fun in San Francisco, meeting other forum members, sightseeing, the dragon, etc. was great in one respect. I enjoy the ability to see what it was like from the comfort and relative affordability of my home.
It was a little hard to take though. Missing out on a good time like that should be. I was a little bit bummed I couldn't go, like a lot of people. I don't really mind, because I know I'll have my chance sooner or later.
When it comes to Wanee, later is now.
As fast as it has come together for so many members, it looks to be a great time. There are so many people I want to meet from this board, and thank them for their kind words. The camping will give us a place to hang out, have a meal, bs, you know, all that stuff. The line up has the only bands I see. I'm going to stand between the speakers and absorb the Mickey show through my chakra's. Where else do you get to hear live interpretations of the sound of space? Come on, how many chances do you get to do that? Hornsby rolling around on the keys. Two Furthur shows. Etc...
I'm just saying it looks to be a heck of a good time. If you're on the fence you may want to take a better look. I am usually on the fence and say no, I don't go. Looking at the pics after would be disappointing. You may well get your chance later, but this seems like its going to be great.
